Cong has 'secret understanding' with BJP, says Arvind Kejriwal
NEW DELHI: Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal has accused the Congress for helping the BJP in 2019 polls after it decided against an alliance with Aam Aadmi Party in Delhi. Delhi Congress chief Sheila Dikshit announced that there would be no alliance with the AAP after a meeting with Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday morning.
CM Kejriwal tweeted about a possible "secret understanding" between BJP and Congress and said Delhi is ready to fight the "unholy alliance" between Congress and BJP. "At a time when the whole country wants to defeat Modi-Shah duo, Congress is helping BJP by splitting anti-BJP vote. Rumours are that Congress has some secret understanding with BJP. Delhi is ready to fight against Cong-BJP alliance. People will defeat this unholy alliance," Kejriwal tweeted
The AAP chief had earlier said an alliance was necessary to defeat the BJP but Tuesday's announcement by the Congress puts rest to speculations of a pact in Delhi.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, AAP spokesperson Gopal Rai said the Congress was playing hide and seek and helping the BJP.
Senior leaders who were present in the meeting with Congress boss Rahul Gandhi said the top leadership of the party had a problem with the seat-sharing proposed by the ruling AAP in Delhi.
Meanwhile, reacting to the tweet of Arvind Kejriwal, Delhi BJP chief Manoj Tiwari charged that Delhi Chief Minister was so much infuriated due to the refusal of the Congress to form an alliance that his mental condition was being affected. In an internal survey, the AAP has found it is going to get only 8 per cent votes in the next elections.
